Subject: Happy! – Jan 8 (Tampa Red / NJ Fireman)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 08 Jan 06 - 10:27 AM

Happy Birthday!

Pre-electric Chicago slide-guitarist,

Tampa Red
(Hudson Whittaker or Woodbridge)

was born 1/8/1904
in Smithville GA - raised in Tampa

One of Chicago's earliest blues stars and most influential guitarists.

1/8 in 2006 in New Jersey: Happy Volunteer Fireman Day!

        My brither Bill's a fireman, bold,
           He pits oot fires.
        Only twenty-three years old,
           He pits oot fires.
        He went to a fire the other night
        When somebody shouted, "Dynamite!"
        Wherever he is, he'll be all right.
           He pits oot fires.

                "My brither Bill," a Glasgow street song
